Kick-Ass 2 (Movie) Has Been Greenlit
We know the sequel to Kick-Ass is happening in comic format. Actually, it already began in the upcoming release of Mark Millar's CLiNT magazine.
The good news is, it looks like we can indeed expect a live-action sequel as well. Bleeding Cool reported that Mark Millar was a guest on the Richard Bacon Show on BBC Radio Five Live and shared some information.
Millar said that due to the sales estimates for the UK release of Kick-Ass on DVD (based on US sales), the movie should end up making a quarter of a billion dollars. The movie basically made a lot of money and cost very little to make. According to Millar, the movie has been greenlit.
In other Millar related news, apparently the director for Nemesis is going after Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp to star in the movie. Good luck.
Is the idea of a sequel to Kick-Ass, kick-ass news for you?
I reviewed the movie and Blu-ray earlier this month.
Kinda hoping they get a different director. I watched it over the weekend it was ok, not great, but I think my main qualm is for whatever reason the director would just linger on punchlines. It sort of felt like someone telling a joke and then saying "get it?" The fight scenes were good though.
What is with all these so-called "comic book fans" that haven't see Kick Ass yet? People, it's in the Red Box for $1 rental! It's ON DEMAND for cable companies across America to rent! Netflix has it for rent! The movie is still playing at most dollar theaters. I can understand if you live in a foreign country and they haven't released it or released it on dvd, but at least check out some of the scenes on You Tube. You owe it to yourself as comic book fans to see this movie. It's a fun ride and a good break from all the Dark Tights and Iron Men movies.
I'm personally looking forward to Kick Ass 2. The script idea sounds great too. I could care less if they don't get a bigger budget. I simply hope they make it as great as the first.
" @NightFang said:Really, what are you smoking, lol." @Icarusflies said:THAT my friend, is a matter of opinion. I think he's a terrible actor. "" Awww, not Johnny Depp... But, YAY SEQUEL! :D "What's wrong why Johnny Depp, he's a good actor. "
" I liked the movie and all, but there is no way this movie is making "a quarter billion dollars" after DVD sales. Just not happening. "It could easily do it, cult movies like Kick-Ass often make most of their money through DVD sales these days, just look at the Hellboy series.
